Open Data Albania is updating the data associated with cash and its equivalents for 2013. All accounts and deposits with maturity of less than three months, as well as gold and other precious metals held within and outside the country are considered equivalent to cash. Data related to cash and cash equivalents were obtained from the Bank of Albania as the main issuer of our national currency.

During 2013 the Albanian state had a value of 21.66 billion ALL deposits in foreign banks. These deposits are nothing but currency that, as a result of not getting an appropriate terrain to invest in the country, is deposited in banks abroad.

This year, deposits in foreign banks were composed of 61.5% from current accounts, 38.4% of short term deposits, 0.1% of futures contracts and much less accrued interest.

Future contracts are standard contracts for the purchase or sale at a future date of a financial or non-financial asset, with a specific predetermined price. On 31 December 2013, the net value of these contracts was 31 million ALL. Accrued interest includes incomes from lent securities, with a value of approximately two million ALL.

Interesting is the way how the Bank of Albania has increased the value of liquidity in foreign currency. Specifically in 2007 this value was only worth four million ALL, to mark the value of 1.06 billion ALL in the next year. In 2013, the foreign currency liquidity has recorded a value of 40 million ALL.
